The author, my in-laws' brother, spends a lot of time examining Catholic doctrin re original sin. He says there were subhuman types before Adam and Eve, but they are ancestors of of all people now alive, and that they lived "in the neighborhood of 200,000 years ago." A lot of study is reflected in this unusual and extremely interesting book. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0761812776, Hardcover)

Evolution and the Sin in Eden discusses the introduction of sin to man from an evolutionary standpoint, proposing a new theory that proposes that God does not choose to bestow sanctifying grace on everyone indiscriminately by force while interfacing modern theology with modern science. Instead, he waits for people to seek it as the Church does by looking for a likelihood of Christian education before allowing Baptism. This allowance of freedom by God prevents him from bestowing grace on all who enter the world because of the massive sin it leads to. Yet Christ restores the original condition of humans before Adam's sin through grace and baptism as told by St. Irenaeus, who was closer to Apostolic Tradition than the more pessimistic St. Augustine.
